Morrissey in the middle of a European tour and while talking to the Spanish newspaper El Mundo (via The Guardian) about his music and shows, he let it be known that he was treated for cancer after his doctors found cancerous tissue in his body. Since Morrissey is a human “Shit Happens And Then You Die” t-shirt hanging in a Hot Topic, he shrugged at cancer and said that if he dies, he dies. WHATEVER. Don’t expect some Fault Of Our Stars-like philosophy about cancer from Morrissey. Morrissey IS Rosa’s cancer treatment friend from Orange is the New Black:
“They have scraped cancerous tissue four times already, but, whatever. If I die, then I die. And if I don’t, then I don’t. Right now I feel good. I am aware that in recent photos of me I look somewhat unhealthy, but that’s what illness can do. I’m not going to worry about it. I’ll rest when I’m dead.”
Grumpy Cat’s idol added that he’s working on a novel right now and hopefully he can quit doing music and be a full-time writer:
“I’m now at an age when I should no longer be making music. Many composers of classical music died at 34. And I’m still here, and nobody knows what to do with me. With luck I will be able to stop singing forever, which would make many people happy.”
In the same interview, Morrissey goes full Morrissey by spitting on the British royal family, the Beckhams, bullfighting and King Juan Carlos for shooting an elephant during a big game hunt.
You know, I’m a little disappointed that Morrissey is throwing a “meh” at cancer. Morrissey hates everything and he never misses out on an opportunity to go on and on about how much he hates it. I expected him to tell cancer to eat shit and throw itself off of a cliff, and while it’s at it, take the British royal family, meat eaters, China, Jimmy Kimmel, the Duck Dynasty hillbillies, Paul McCartney, Elton John, Posh & Becks and (insert everything else that isn’t a vegan cat) with it.
